Joan,

The Houston organization is the Thyroid Society for Education and Research
…something or other. I don’t remember the whole title. They are
a separate organization from TFA. They publish a newsletter, quarterly
I think, called The Thyroid Connection. They just started publishing
it within the last 2 or 3 years and have thus far had feature stories
on Muhammad Ali, Joe Piscapo and one other famous person with a thyroid
disorder. (I have only received three issues since I joined them.) I
received a copy of an article about Gail Devers from either the Society
or TFA that indicates that she actually has done some work with the
Society in the past. It was mentioned in passing at the end of the
article. I’ll dig it out and send you the quote from it, if you’re
interested.
